So Blatant, Only Propaganda Can Maintain It
in the simplest terms, the self-righteous
War on Drugs is basically a majority of an
otherwise drug- and food-addicted majority
(see below) ganging up on a minority and stigmatizing
them, then playing high and mighty. Compared
to the damage being done to physical bodies
by legal drugs, the no-no drugs are a peehole
in the snow. This is so, for one thing, because
the legal ones are pushed under guise of benefit
to us and are trustingly and widely used.
It's a mean game perpetrated at its foundation
by elite manipulation,
the purpose of which is to create profit,
illness, chaos, and to increase people's susceptibility
example, take the scourge
of Ritalin and the victimization of millions
of children who are pushed to becoming drug
dependent because of irresponsible medical
policies backed by elite control, and in turn
accepted by the brainwashed populace. But
legal-drug abuse also potentiates the tendency
to illegal-drug use and abuse.
irony, of course, is that both categories—legal
and illegal—are pushed by essentially
the same malfeasant network. The illegal trade
is much beloved by the elite because it produces
annually about a half-trillion-dollar tax-free
liquid asset that can be put to all kinds
of underhanded purpose (such as supporting
terrorism) without the messy irritation of
accounting, and which also actually props
up our economy (more below). The sad joke
is, of course, that local and state authorities,
if they're not playing in the sandbox, think
they have a chance of stopping this juggernaut.
efforts at law enforcement amount to this:
running madly around building sandbag levees,
while the big dam owners upstream regulate
the sluice gates. An exercise in futility.
Einstein said that insanity is doing the same
thing over and over, and expecting different
results. We didn't learn with Prohibition
in the 1920's, and we're learning nothing
now. Compounding the inequity of criminalizing
a matter of personal choice, is the enormous
cost of enforcement, prosecution, and incarceration.
Then, officials turn around looking for money
for schools and so on.
around half the people in American prisons
are non-violent drug cases. One hook is that
prisons are now being run more and more by
corporations for profit. Naturally, guests
are needed, hence another source of hypocritical
motive and pressure to keep drugs illegal.
and Food-Addicted Blowhardism
Society has its addicting and poisonous
drugs of choice. We have our foods of choice,
many of which are addicting and poisonous,
such as sugar, meat and white flour. In addition,
our processed foods contain neurotoxic substances,
called excitotoxins, which are allowed by
the FDA, whose lips are too-often planted
on the collective corporate butt.
what's the goal here with prohibition—to
"protect" people, especially children,
from the evil drugs? OK, not a bad idea, but
then we turn around and poison the kids mercilessly
with conventionalized aspects of our way of
life. Any Holistic practitioner will tell
you sugar is much closer to drug than food.
In my view, giving it to a baby, or anyone
below the age of consent, should be criminal.
Note I said "giving." This is the
fine point. Once we grow up, we've got a right
to poison ourselves with sugar—or cocaine.
Another horrendous "food" pushed
on kids is homo/pasteurized cow milk—in
all its permutations. Cases of ADD have been
resolved just be removing this factor from
a kid's diet.
here's another irony. Rather than seek a sane
route, 'Dr Frankenstein' prefers to leave
kids on the dairy and additive-laden processed
foods, and give Ritalin to the ADD-afflicted
child. We now have about 6 million kids taking
that poison—on top of the myriad others
purposely and in passing conveyed, one way
or antother, into the bodies of our precious
previous director of the National Institute
of Mental Health (NIMH), Dr. Steven Hyman,
a neuroscientist and expert in how psychotropic
drugs work, published articles noting that
repeated exposure to stimulant drugs leads
to addiction and alterations in gene expression:
Hyman SE: "Initiation and adaptation:
a paradigm for understanding psychotropic
drug action, "Am J Psychiatry 1996; 153:151-162
Yet, Dr. Hyman endorsed a Ritalin experiment
to be conducted on toddlers.
the 'anti-drug' blowhards, from parents addicted/dependent
upon coffee, cigarettes, sugar, alchohol,
and the myriad OTC drugs dispensed like water,
to the politically correct but misguided politicians
and law enforcement officials playing into
elite hands, stand aghast at some one smoking
a joint or sniffing some cocaine.
particularly nasty prescription-drug category
is the SSRI, or Selected Serotonin Reuptake
Inhibitors. Serotonin is an excitatory neurotransmitter,
a chemical essential to nerve impulse flow.
The SSRI prevents the natural reabsorption
of excess serotinin in the nerve synapse.
All SSRIs can cause dependency. This happens
because when a person stops taking the drug
or even reduces the amount of it, he experiences
adverse physical and/or psychological events—some
quite severe. In fact, legal-drug effects
are becoming exposed as cause for several
of the "unexplained" shootings,
such as in schools.
Pittman Despite overwhelming evidence
showing that Zoloft triggered Chris’
behavior, the jury found him guilty. He has
been sentenced to 30 years...
Kinkel 15-year-old Springfield,
Oregon boy who opened fire in the school cafeteria
had been on Prozac...
Weise 16-year-old Redlake, Minnesota

youth who had been treated for depression
in a psychiatric ward...
By far the worst dependency-producing SSRI
is Paxil. Followed fairly closely by Zoloft
and more distantly by Prozac. The reason for
the difference is strictly chemical. Dependency
is dictated by the length of time the drug
stays in the body). The shorter the time,
the worse the dependency adverse effects,
because replacement is required more frequently.
Because Paxil's duration is 21 hours, it ranks
No. 1 in causing dependency. Zoloft follows
close behind with a duration of 26 hours.
Prozac, on the other hand, has a duration
of 5.7 days.
Sun, 26 Jun '05: Local newspaper, colleges
form anti-drug alliance.
Fitchburg/Leomsinter (MA) Sentinel & Enterprise,
Fitchburg State, and Mt Wachusett Community
College have formed an alliance of "community
leaders" and officials to help fight
the area's problem with drug abuse and trafficking.
A noble idea--if they'd only see/admit what
the worst drug problem is by far--legal drugs.
However, their focus is on the more politically
corrrect arena, the low-down, criminal, illegal-drug
dealers, who, to a person, they utterly revile
with all the lily-white sheen they can muster.
But nothing is said of the nasty, low-down,
criminal, legal-drug dealers, who are legitimate
community members (more on this below). Nor
is anything said about the societally condoned,
unstigmatized, 'passel' of drugs and drug-like
substances that, taken with legal drugs, constitute
a much greater threat than the politically
correct cause. Indeed, aspects of that 'passel'
frequently appear in the paper as admirable
or cute or socially engaging facts of community
life. They are no less destructive, however,
and often more so. To their credit, of course,
they promote the consumer economy.
To be fair, we have to say it could be just
a deadly innocent lack of awareness. But it's
this writer's intention to make the case publicly
and privately as often as possible until the
facts are on the table. Then, either something
really good will happen, or it will become
apparent how deep the hypocrisy runs (even,
perhaps, throughout the community, not just
among official folk).
What must be the fundamental goal of this
Alliance? Improving the image of the community?
Quality of life? Decreasing the abuse of a
certain stigmatized group of drugs (SGD)?
All these are obvious, but what about putting
this campaign in the context of a more fundamental
goal: protecting and improving the health
of people and the community? In this context,
the campaign is left wanting.
The questionable tone of the current approach
is offered in the article: "The Alliance
focuses on the three key areas of the problem:
Enforcement, education/prevention, and treatment."
These items were perhaps not purposely listed
by priority, but the order indicates a misguided
mindset. How many decades of failed enforcement
will it take to conclude that it will never
work, but operates mainly as an expensive
cops-and-robbers merry-go-round? As noted,
Einstein said insanity is doing the same thing
repeatedly and expecting different results.
Even if law enforcement were to make a serious
dent in the local flow of SGD, that will most
likely be countered with increasing violence
from the dealers, because there is too much
demand and too much money involved. We are
thus moving ourselves toward open street war
and increasing threat to officers' and even
do we love violence and war? The very worst
community problems arising from the drug scene
are all direct or indirect results of the
illegality of the
drugs. In other words, we've learned nothing
from Prohibition, and so invite the criminals
in to handle things.
corporations get away with "dealing"
contamination easily more dangerous that SGDs.
This includes not only legal drugs, but industrial
chemicals. Our air, food, and water are widely
contaminated by corporations that operate
legally, thanks to the legislative protections
created by corporate-owned politicians. This
is an excellent example of the difference
between 'legal' and 'just.' Also, in many
of these legal cases, we are being assaulted
with substances, as opposed to exercising
albeit quite belatedly, the
chemical threat has come to the fore.
But even if the problem were solved yesterday,
the momentum behind decades of poisoning will
take its toll for decades to come. The cruel
irony comes as money is fleeced from well-meaning
donators and those walking, riding, and running
citizens, to be sent down the sink-hole of
medical disease research looking for toxic
treatments (drugs) for the symptoms of toxicity.
Some will argue that the street-drug demand
factor is where the education/prevention facet
of the Alliance's approach comes in. True,
but that should be priority number one, treatment
number two, and enforcement a distant third,
finally to be eliminated. Money wasted on
and incarcerations could be much better applied
to outreach and treatment. One Fitchburg politician
said addicts need to be incarcerated to be
treated properly. If true, resources could
come from terminating enforcement, and it
could be in special treatment centers, and
by choice for adults.
however, the anti-drug fervor has reached
a level where even the treatment centers are
reviled, complainants saying they bring in
an 'undesirable element.' They even lower
property values, the crying goes, so "not
in my back yard." Such snobbery and selfishness
ought to be beneath the good Judeo-Christian
officials and citizens that abound locally.
Fighting the problem with guns and handcuffs
is a huge waste of energy and resources. Consider
what a group of law enforcement people
have to say (essentially, regulation, not
I won't repeat the regulation argument here,
but will say that you will find the greatest
resistance to it among the criminal global
elitists (and their lapdogs in Washington)
who run the banks that launder the big drug
cash that then finds and winds its way to
Wall Street and holds up the US economy. Oh
yes, the hypocritical soap-boxing is heavier
by orders of magnitude on The Hill.
resistant to reform will be the corporations
who profit from running prisons. Prison-building
is now one of our fastest-growing industries--right
in step with the out-sourcing of our maufacturing
potential. However, both that process and
the drug trade are managed by the global elite.
Corporately owned legislators are lobbied
and propagandized to make laws that incarcerate
millions of Americans in "The War on
Drugs." This has as much to do with the
interest of the corporate-controlled prison
industry as anything else. And, as prisons
come more under corporate control, the captive
labor being put to work is becoming competitive
with outsourced labor:
are currently...more than two million [people]
incarcerated in the United states. And of
those two million--half of whom were added
in the last ten years--more than sixty percent
are non-violent drug offenders. There has
been a trend...toward employing many...as
virtual slave labor for multinational corporations...everything
from processing credit card statements, to
making airline reservations, to assembling
your tennis shoes." - Michael C. Ruppert,
Crossing the Rubicon
The first drug to be released from its bonds
should be marijuana. The marvelous, multi-use
hemp plant is very much a commercial threat
to oil companies, the alcohol & tobacco
industries, a large number of chemical corporations,
and the paper and fabric industries. Various
big businesses, with plenty of dollars and
influence conspired to suppress the truth
and to create and maintain illegality.
If hemp were utilized for its vast array of
commercial products, it would create a new
industrial revolution. Entrepreneurs have
not been educated on this potential. The super
rich have conspired to spread misinformation
about an extremely versatile plant that, if
used properly, would heavily challenge their
companies, most of which are Earth-negative.
the mid 1930s, the marijuana word was created
to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history
of the hemp plant. It is no secret that propaganda
campaigns were launched to discredit hemp
by demonizing the cannabis-producing variety.
THINK about it. At the least, only that variety
should have been outlawed, since no one can
get high from the other.
the engineered hysteria:
• 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes,
linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made
from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction
of the cotton gin.
• The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy
Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration
of Independence and the Constitution were
made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.
• The first crop grown in many states
was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky
producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest
cash crop until the 20th Century.
• The oldest known records of hemp farming
go back 5000 years in China, although hemp
industrialization probably goes back to ancient
• Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, and Van
Goghs, as well as most early canvas paintings,
were principally painted on hemp linen.
We could have a thriving hemp cottage industry
in this region if, instead of knuckling under,
we stood up to the feds, fought for our freedom,
and got the hemp law changed.
You will find, if you look into it, that a
major motive for the Afghanistan Attack was
to restore the heroin flow cut off by the
Taliban, which went from 186 tons pre-CIA-control
to the current post-CIA-control amount of
around 4,000 tons. And you will also find,
if you look into it, that the Kosovo Attack
was designed to solidify the heroin trade
route to Europe. Moreover, you'll find that,
quite frequently, after the US military has
devastated an area that drugs, especially
heroin, soon follow. This is happening now
in Iraq, and the elitists intend to bring
that culture down with the stuff.
Another class of drugs, however, is more dangerous
than the SGD--prescription and OTC drugs.
These we can call the accepted-group of drugs,
or AGD. I say more dangerous, because, not
only are many much more disruptive chemically,
but with SGD, no one in position of authority
is saying, "Take this, it's good for
you." On 28 June '05, the S&E ran
an editorial "Prescription for disaster."
It discusses the dangers of mistakes with
prescriptions, but begs the question of whether
our reliance on drugs is wise to begin with.
That's the issue no one raises. Drugs are
There is then a third group: society's chosen-group,
or recreational drugs (CGD), namely caffeine,
nicotine and alcohol. Coffee is a national
pastime and sacred cow. But a single cup of
coffee cause the body to elevate the fight-or-flight
hormone cortisol for two days. Elevated cortisol
leads to several so-called diseases, including
bone-density loss and cancer, premature aging
and diabetes. Cute folks, those caffeine addicts.
also is the massive hypocrisy already noted:
The accepted-drug addicted majority stigmatize
the illegal-drug using minority, staring down
like Pinocchios of hypocrisy at them and passing
laws and jUGDment. People are then persecuted,
prosecuted and incarcerated for something
which is a matter of personal choice.
Finally we come to the drug-like substances
not generally recognized as drugs, but which
are addicting or habituated and health negative,
having a drug-like effect on the body. These
are usually mistakenly thought of as food,
and include sugar and most grain products,
especially white flour. These I'll call the
food-group of drugs, FGD. It's truly dangerous,
and the kids are really taking a beating from
it. (An important subset of this group is
the additives in processed food, which are
capable, for example, of causing ADD--which,
of course, we then poison kids with Ritalin
to "correct.") These three groups
taken together may be called the unstigmatized-group
of drugs, or UGD; and we can establish a polarity
between this and the SGD.
If anyone doubts the deadliness of the AGD,
let him consider that these kill somewhere
between 110 thousand and 130 thousand people
annually, as admitted by the medical establishment.
Compare that to figures on deaths by illegal
drugs. In fact, there is no comparison: the
legal ones are far more deadly--and their
dosages are controlled. One might argue that
this is an acceptable risk, because AGD are
so greatly needed. The dead might disagree
with that, and I suggest the vast majority
of the use of AGD is unnecessary and a result
of trafficking (politely called marketing
and prescribing) driven by avarice. And the
kids are taking a real beating from these
Most drugs in AGD are unnecessary, because
the principles of wellness (see Meaningful
Health Care Reform) are amost completely
disregarded in the diagnosis-prescription
process, in favor of the chemical 'solution,'
which in most cases is no solution at all,
but actually worsens illness. I will argue
this point anywhere at any time with anyone
who wishes to engage it. Also, there is sufficient
history of the ravages of medical drugs even
to argue convincingly for malfeasance, in
addition to avarice, behind the trafficking
of legal drugs. But if it's a comfort to convince
yourself that the Vioxx scandal was an isolated
incident, please be my guest.
The CGD and FDG groups also present a more
dangerous threat to society than the SGD,
and perhaps the greatest challenge to overcome.
Why? Many more people are addicted to, want
them, and take them (some of that due to brainwashing),
just like other people want the SGD.
All we need to demonstrate this perfectly
would be if the tables were turned. Then the
latte, coolatta and white-flour/sugar Starbucks
addicts would be in the alleys looking for
their fix, and the goody-two-shoes would be
sitting at home puffing a joint or sniffing
lines in front of the TV bemoaning those low-life
illegal drug users and the filthy dealers
that supply them. I know this sounds a bit
facetious, but it is essentially correct.
An important point is that our society is
drug-tuned in general. It is magic-bullet-tuned.
Pop a pill for everything. There are drug
ads on TV that don't even disclose the claimed
purpose, yet encourage people to talk to their
doctor! It is massively hypocritical to say
do as I say, not as I do.
We've got about 6 million kids on Ritalin
in the US, and approaching 2 million ages
6-18 on Prozac (and some on Paxil, which is
worse). These drugs can cause more mental
problems than they are said to solve. Every
teen involved in the notorious shootings and
killings like Columbine, Springfield Orgeon,
and Red Lake were on Prozac. Millions of adult
Americans are on anti-depressants as well.
It is madness simply to accept this, as we
apparently are doing, and a major inconsistency
and error to ignore it in the Alliance.
this section is a mind-boggling collection
of information about the devastation of kids by psychiatric
drugs, especially antidepressants, which are being 'pushed' much
harder than street drugs by multi-million-dollar advertising and
marketing. This was sent to me by an internet associate who is
a family psychiatrist.
As noted above, fundamentally, the drug laws
are a decision by the acceptably drug-addicted
and self-destructive majority to stigmatize
and bully a minority to deprive them of the
drugs they want. It's simple, un-American
discrimination, and an insult to the Republic.
So if we really want to address the 'drug'
issue honestly and effectively, the scope
of attention, definition and concern needs
to be widened considerably, or a huge failure
will result, the self-comfort achieved from
the politically correct focus notwithstanding.
Because a person killed by a heroin overdose
or at knifepoint by a desperate drug dealer
is no more dead and no more tragic than any
one of the 130,000 annual victims of Dr. Frankenstein's
noxious medicaments, or the many folks who
end up plugged into the disease-facility wall
after some years of indulging the CGD/FDG
To soapbox on the dangers of SGD while our
community and the nation are being eroded
and ravaged much worse by UGD is, with all
due respect, a truly dangerous lack of awareness
at best. So I respectfully suggest a thorough
reconsideration of the stated goals and M-O
of the North Central Massachusetts Alliance
For a Drug-Free Future.
